Abstract

Calanco (plural, calanchi) is a term widely used in the northern Apennines, Italy, to define a type of badland formed in clayey bedrock. However, no precise geomorphological definition of calanco has been established. The availability of modern, high accuracy maps raises the possibility of improving on these qualitative definitions and symbols by developing a topographic parameter that can use the characteristics of calanco landscapes to discriminate them from other landforms. To this end, this paper reports the results of attempts to define an easily calculable parameter to identify terrain typical of the calanco landform
